Great location and stunning sunset views from a lovely beach setting. Food is always very good and service to match. And bonus for us was there range of Gluten free food. Music nights are always great!

This relaxed restaurant on the beach is one of our favourite spots. Great for sunsets, food and the bar is well stocked. We ate here twice on our last 2 week stay.

Rainy night but dry inside. Very good staff and service, Meal was sufficient but not startling and fairly pricey for what we had. Pleasant evening.

We visited Waterline on our final night as it had been recommended to us by other visitors. Definitely lived up to the recommendation, we had a beautiful view, excellent food and a magical sunset to finish our holiday.
